Prep Roundup: Lady Vols use strong second half to beat Prescott
KINGMAN – A three-point first quarter could have proven costly on the road Tuesday, but the Lee Williams High School girls basketball team made sure it didn’t in a 33-28 win over Prescott.
The Lady Vols trailed 14-13 at halftime, but used a 14-point third quarter to pull away. Liberty Cronk and Lia Lucero sank consecutive 3-pointers to give Lee Williams a 27-20 advantage over the No. 26 ranked Lady Badgers (6-10, 4-6 4A Grand Canyon Region).
“Kaylee Bond was outstanding in the post scoring twice in the third,” said Lady Vols head coach Jerry Arave. “Hallie Powell also did a great job defending Prescott’s best player (Hollie Dalton) and held her to just three points for the entire game.”
Bond, Lucero and Hayle Davis each finished with eight points, while LaNae Burgess added three points.
No. 18 ranked Lee Williams (10-5, 5-4 4A Grand Canyon Region) made the trip to Flagstaff Wednesday and then hosts 36th-ranked Mohave (3-12, 0-9) at 5:30 p.m. Friday.
